Summary

Summary

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Kami Garcia, The Lovely Reckless is a contemporary romance full of loss, love and redemption…

Seventeen year-old Frankie Devereux would do anything to forget the past. Haunted by the memory of her boyfriend’s death, she lives her life by one dangerous rule: nothing matters. At least, that’s what Frankie tells herself after a reckless mistake forces her to leave her privileged life in the Heights to move in with her dad—an undercover cop. She transfers to public school in the Downs, where fistfights in the halls don’t faze anyone and illegal street racing is more popular than football.

Marco Leone is the fastest street racer in the Downs. Tough, sexy, and hypnotic, he makes it impossible for Frankie to ignore him…and how he makes her feel. But the risks Marco takes for his family could have devastating consequences for them both. When Frankie discovers his secret, she has to make a choice. Will she let the pain of the past determine her future? Or will she risk what little she has left to follow her heart?

"Narrator Cynthia Hopkins does this complex story credit with her insightful narration... Hopkins gets right to the heart of this romance, ensuring that listeners will be riveted as each layer of secrets is peeled away." -AudioFile

“[A] fast-paced story of trauma, loss, new love, and high-speed cars..The romantic scenes sizzle. A wild and enjoyable ride.” Kirkus Reviews
“Narrator Cynthia Hopkins does this complex story credit with her insightful narration…Hopkins traces Frankie’s emotional evolution with understated but stunning clarity—from the aching emptiness of the early chapters to her growing awareness of Marco, to the intensity of their relationship and the wrenching choices she’s forced to make in order to be with him…Hopkins gets right to the heart of this romance, ensuring that listeners will be riveted as each layer of secrets is peeled away.” AudioFile
